Simple, Effective, Life Changing vein treatment is now available in Blenheim.
It’s pretty obvious when you’re talking to a person who loves what they do, and it’s easy to see why Dr David Orsbourn does, because every day he is literally transforming lives – cliché? No, these words are not too heavy.
Any one who has suffered from an unsightly condition that effects their appearance, confidence, and self esteem will certainly agree just how transformational it is for the condition to no longer be an issue.
The wonderful news is that what used to be an invasive operation involving general anesthetic, is now an easy two hour procedure (you can be back at work the next day)… and thanks to Dr David Orsbourn from Enhanceskin, it is now available right here in Blenheim.
I popped over to Nelson to meet David and find out more…
At his private Nelson cosmetic, medical and vein clinic David specialises in all cosmetic medicine, as well as medical procedures such as skin cancer operations.
Today we are focusing on his work with varicose vein removal. David recently began running clinics in Blenheim at Churchill Trust Private Hospital.
“Churchill Trust are passionate about helping Marlborough people access services locally and it’s great to be able to be part of that,” enthuses David.
David will offer two options for treatment of varicose veins in Blenheim. Ultrasound Guided Foam Sclerotherapy (UGFS) and Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA). The method of treatment used is decided by the severity of the varicose vein, and depending how early treatment is sought.
Endovenous Laser is more for wide caliber veins (“drain pipes” as David has nicknamed them). Laser is the gold standard treatment but the same results are achieved with Sclerotherapy, which is less invasive and less cost. If a vein can be treated with Sclerotherapy, this is the first method of choice.
Micro Sclerotherapy can also be used for treatment of spider veins.
It is important to note, many cases of varicose veins are caused by a genetic disease of the veins, the reason for the disease is unknown, and it can not be cured.
The treatments above effectively treat what is there and is an issue at the time, however more varicose veins forming in the years ahead can not be prevented.
So who is this treatment available to? Public health offer no treatment for varicose veins, other than management by offering stockings or dressing if the veins reach ulceration. The only option for actual treatment is through a private clinic such as Enhanceskin. Patients who are symptomatic – experience aching, itching, or restless legs due to varicose veins may be able to access private health insurance.
The treatment cost at Enhanceskin includes follow up appointments for twelve months. “We really encourage these follow up appointments because we want to get the best possible result,” says David. “We also offer payment options to try and reduce the barrier.”
David, who has been a doctor in general practice for more than twenty years, is a very practical person in terms of “doing things” which has lead him in recent years to focus on his work with cosmetic medicine. “Some people feel that getting more in to the cosmetic side of things is going over to the dark side, but it’s actually just the same as general practice, it’s building relationships and helping people.” David states simply. “As well as that, it’s incredibly practical.”
David also does a lot of skin cancer checks, and mole removal, an area he is particularly passionate about, and he educates his clients on a daily basis. His work with vein treatment came as a natural addition to his clinic, and he’s very keen to spread the word about the latest treatments available.
“There are a lot of people out there suffering in silence, thinking they have to have surgery. I’ve performed laser treatment on patients in their eighties who were never going to be candidates for surgery, and they have had fantastic results.” Other patients David says had literally become recluses, and stopped going out because of problems that can be resolved simply and effectively.
David and his wife Robyn make a great team at Enhanceskin. Robyn takes care of front of house, is very well trained on the products and treatments available, she can answer any questions and is a great support to clients, particularly when a woman’s reassurance is needed.
I found it fascinating hearing stories of procedures David has performed and how life changing they can be.
Are you one of the many people putting up with a condition that can be fixed quickly, simply and effectively? “Most people think “why didn’t I do that ages ago, it was so simple”, David says of many of his clients who have had procedures with him.
So with non invasive varicose vein removal now available in Blenheim and with David offering a FREE, No obligation doctor’s assessment and scan, if you suffer from varicose veins there is absolutely nothing to lose, and potentially a life changing experience to gain!
